SHABBY AND CHIC

Whether or not you're into the whole shabby chic approach, this sweet Scandinavian country kitchen might win you over. Every single nook is full of charm and history. This kind of decor calls for a mix and match of pieces with signs of wear and tear, and this lovely eat-in kitchen is a beautiful example of this design style done right. Amazing flea market treasures, family heirlooms and wonderful finds from a nearby barn is what makes it so special. I'm sold! How about you?

DREAMING IN WHITE

Well now, isn't this the most luminous home you've ever seen? 
The house was built 1926 but went through a rigorous renovation resulting in this beaming abode perfect for an active family. The biggest bonus from the remodeling is the great open layout and the amazing amount of light that bathes every single nook. With great great help from their architects and without compromising much, Marte and Odd-Ture got the dream house they're wishing for. No doubt this must be a stunning place to come home to.

COLOR ME HAPPY

Nothing makes me happier than Fridays. What else does the trick? A colorful stunner like this loft in downtown Montreal. There's something so beautiful about the spectacular color blocking used in this 15,000 square-feet, open-plan apartment that's making my day. Its interesting design was conceived by architect Jean Verville for a collector of modern art and design objects. The glossy surfaces together with the prismatic colors make a divine combination. It must be like living inside a box of Prismacolor coloring pencils. Right? Have a fierce weekend!

COLOR BLOCKING

Are you mad about color but find yourself doubting how to inject it to your living room? Well, doubt no more. Here's a quick guide from our friends at House to Home that will demystify color for you. If you're in a monochromatic mood, mix textures, patterns and different shades of the color of your choice to add interest to the room. Also, with the large variety of fun wallpapers available to us now, you can pick a feature wall in your living room and use a colorful wall covering to create a focal point. One last but important tip: don't be afraid to be bold as bold can be a good thing. Dare to use combinations of colors you might have never thought of using. Accent pieces are a great way to introduce this color-blocking concept. Are you feeling adventurous now?

A STORE WITH SOLE

One of the brands I have always admired for its creativity and clean graphics is the footwear company Camper. Their store concepts, although simple and calm, are beautiful and are designed with exquisite touches of whimsy. The new stores are developed under the Together concept, a model of collaboration between Camper and leading designers to create outstanding limited-edition stores. This one, in Genova, Italy, was done by Spanish designer Tomas Alonso. I love how he lined the walls with a grid of white ceramic tiles with a simple twist that breaks the regular pattern with geometric shapes that create a three-dimensional illusion. Not only did he came up with the overall concept, but Tomas also designed the cool furniture throughout the store.

A TRIO TO SHOWCASE

Finding beautiful bathroom accessories at times can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to items like a toilet brush and the not-so-attractive plunger. You know we've all been there. But guess what? This sleek, modern—but with a twist of old-school practicality—bathroom trio by Josh Owen will make your bathrooms shine. The WC Line is a space-conscious and highly functional line of bathroom accessories that includes a waste bin, toilet brush and plunger—made from ultra durable silicone in a range of super cool colors. The design of all three pieces is so beautiful and simple that you won't feel the need to hide them but will want to proudly display for all to see and covet.
